Television - Bachelor

The bachelor’s programme in Television focus on creating content for television. The students deal with a range of aspects, from journalistic, everyday narrative to the magic of fiction as well as development of ideas and concepts. Main language of instruction is Swedish.

Television is a visionary, creative and broad field covering many genres and responsibilities. You will need to have a command of many things, from drafting and presenting ideas for content and presentation to doing research, planning and implementing recordings and post-production and understanding how best to reach your audience.

Our students often work for production companies or TV channels after receiving their degrees. They can have varying responsibilities, as researcher, feature producer, editor, member of the editorial staff, programme developer, or working with production planning, recording or post-production. To advance to become a TV producer with the ultimate responsibility for a production company or TV channel, you first need to work in one of the other positions, to build up confidence with the production company or channel. A common form of employment is as a freelancer in a project, but permanent positions are also available.

The Bachelor’s Programme in Television

The course alternates practical exercises with theoretical reflection, and balances solid knowledge of the industry with your personal artistic expression and project ideas.

You will learn to develop your ability to work in teams by taking part in feature productions and in the development and pitching of programme formats and programme series. You will work with developing ideas and concepts and you will test different roles in the TV studio and control room, where you will learn to follow and give instruction. Your practical experiences will meet with theories of group dynamics and leadership.

You will delve deeper into various forms of TV narrative through interviews, reporting and short television fiction. Towards the end of the programme you will choose a place to work as an intern, where you will sharpen your knowledge and get the opportunity to put it to test. The last term of the programme is devoted to an individual production.
